Instead of dwelling over the worst parts of the day, take a look through your phone to see what hidden gems you can find. Fashion Apps are key when it comes to this situation.

Polyvore, Net-A-Porter, HEED, and numerous of other fashion apps lets you in on the latest style. All of them vary from personal styles, to industry trends.

Instagram is the app we all know about. Taking advantage of the beloved app is actually a positive thing to do. Follow your favorite designers and bloggers to see what they are up to. Designer houses will usually show what they are working on for their upcoming collection. This will you give you an idea of what might be the next big trend. Also bloggers, more specifically fashion bloggers are the ones always hunting around in search for things to capture and write about. Their work is always new, fresh, but most importantly current with the trends.

Just be sure not to fall asleep on the jaw dropping updates.

Take advantage of your downtime! This pertains to the weekends especially. Go out and about walking around whether it be in your local location or if you are visiting another place.

Fashion, style, and trends are literally all around you! While going out for brunch with your friends, check out the window displays of the boutiques near by. Take a look at what your friends are wearing. The strangers that walk pass you or sit next to you, check them out!

Hopefully the process of keeping up to date with fashion is not has hard as you once thought. You have all the resources you need right at your fingertips, and right in front of your eyes.
